The 2019 season will mark Gamez's 5th season in professional baseball, 1st with the X's.
Gamez was drafted by the Atlanta Braves in the 11th round of the 2014 MLB Draft from Cienega High School in Vail, Arizona. Gamez would spend 4 seasons pitching in the Braves farm system, spending most of his time at the rookie ball level, while making an appearance in Single-A during the 2016 season. His best season came in 2016 pitching for the Danville Braves, where the righty owned a 2.93 ERA in 6 starts, earning the promotion to the Rome Braves. Gamez would then miss the entire 2017 season due to injury before being released by the Braves during last season. Gamez finished last season pitching in the Mexican League (Triple-A) for the Tigres de Quintana Roo.
